What makes Thailand special? Thailand is known as the only country in Southeast Asia that was not colonized by any foreign entity, so their customs and traditions are very much intact.
What made our trip extra special? Our trip was scheduled at the peak of the Thai Protest (that ended in a coup d’état). Together with my travel hubby and two cousins, our patience, wit and determination were put into a test as most of our itinerary and route were changed as initially planned.
To start with, we were supposed to ride the free shuttle going to Victory Monument (Bus#551) then will take a cab going to Silom, but we were informed by one of my cousin’s colleague that there’s a heavy traffic along the way because of the demonstration. So we opted to ride the Airport Rail Link to Phaya Thai Station then connect ride from Phaya Thai to Sala Daeng Station, which is a half kilometer away from the hotel where we will be staying for the night.
